WHAT ARE HIS AND HER STRENGTHS IN FREERIDING?
Astrid: His style, a pure movement, originality, technique and commitment.
Edgar: : She has a vast amount of experience, perhaps more than many of her competitors. She is always solidly positioned onher feet, with a very strong technique when jumping barriers.
Astrid: I’d say it’s Balme, even though we all have our own little secret spots!
Edgar: She loves Le Fernuy. She makes one or two big jumps at the top, continues with wide turns and then moves towards the pine trees at Mach 12.
THE SPORT THEY PREFER TO PLAY TOGETHER?
Astrid: Surfing. We spend the summer together at the sea, motivating and helping each other.
Edgar: Yes, surfing! We take on a wave in turns, and then meet up at the LineUp, just to have a chat and speak about our exploits on the previous wave, as we wait for the next one.
Astrid: Paragliding. Edgar would love to fly in the mountains around here
Edgar: Maybe boxing. She loves it when people are hard on her and there’s a fight!
Astrid: Hawaii. To go surfing, but most of all to meet the great shapers who make surfboards
Edgar: Canada. The chance to enjoy some great underwater dives in the morning in the Canadian pillow-lines and share it all with her great idol, the freeskier Tatum Monod.
WHAT WOULD HE/SHE LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF SPORT?
Astrid: To create his own surfboards, to work in art and design in his own way.
Edgar: To work in events planning. She likes human contact and seeing friends to have a laugh together. So if one day she follows in the footsteps of Gaylord Pedretti or Julie Arbeit, she’ll do it with all her energy to make sure that festivalgoers have a really festive weekend.
TO CONCLUDE, COULD YOU SUM EACH OTHER UP IN A PHRASE?
Astrid: A very handsome, incredibly attentive guy, who is adorable with everyone and does everything with all his heart.
Edgar: A very pretty and gifted woman, very combative and sometimes a bit of a pain!
